Study Title: A Double-Blinded Comparison of the Accuracy of ShuntCheck and MicroPumper, Noninvasive Devices, to Radionuclide Shunt Patency Test in Evaluating Shunt Function in Patients with Adult Hydrocephalus with Possible Shunt Obstruction
Primary Investigator: Michael A. Williams, MD
IRB # 1532
The purpose of this research study is to compare the accuracy of a noninvasive FDA-approved device, the ShuntCheck, and an investigational device that has not been approved by the FDA, the Micro-Pumper, to the standard Shunt Patency Study method for demonstrating shunt obstruction in patients 35 years and older who have had a shunt placed for adult hydrocephalus. Established patients with possible shunt obstruction may be eligible to participate.
